It is autumn time here in New Zealand. Days are getting shorter, mornings a bit more chilly. It is great to have a warm breakfast.
Rice porridge loaded with fresh local, organic fruit is my favourite breakfast when touring with my bicycle. But now I also have it quite often for breakfast at home as it is such a flavourful and warming dish – a perfect start to the day!
Normally I use fresh fruit but with apple season in full bloom I’ve tried it with fried sour apples. With a dash of coconut sugar and cinnamon it is simply amazing!
For 2 portions you’ll need:
2 cups (75) rice flakes
1 cup water
1 cup soy-milk (ore more if you like it creamy)
2-3 sour apples
2-3 teaspoon coconut sugar
a few pinches of cinnamon
Place the rice flakes with the water and soy-milk in a medium sized pot and bring slowly to boil.
Let simmer for approx 5 of minutes, stirring constantly, then take of the heat and let rest for another 5-10 minutes.
In the meantime, wash the apples, remove the core and cut them into relatively thin wedges.
Place in a medium sized non-stick frying pan and fry for a few minutes on each side until golden brown.
Mix the coconut sugar with the cinnamon to sprinkle it over before dishing up.
